True Italian Pasta Week: The event

For one week 32 of the best Italian restaurants in Berlin will offer a first course of pasta (you have the choice between two really particular recipes and each portion is at least 100g), an Aperol Spritz, a Campari Amalfi or a glass of wine and an Averna for just 12€. The offer is valid in all Italian restaurants participating in the event (soon we will post the full list) and to enjoy these pasta specialities you just need to go to one of the participating restaurants and ask for the menu for the event. The True Italian Pasta Week is a Berlin Italian Communication’s initiative organized within the True Italian project in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Berlin. The event will take place during the Italian Cuisine Week in the world promoted by the Italian Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Agricultural Policies, University Education and Research and Economic Development. Campari, Aperol, Averna, Acqua Panna, San Pellegrino, Hotel Bramante Rome and Hotel Touring Bologna are sponsoring the event.

What kind of pasta you can taste at the event

The event aims to celebrate pasta in all its shapes. Among the recipes proposed you will find the classic fresh homemade pasta, made with eggs and flour (tagliatelle, fettuccine, lasagne, spaghetti alla chitarra, ravioli and any type of filled pasta), handmade pasta with semolina flour and water (orecchiette), potato gnocchi, crespelle and some types of artisanal and top-quality dry pasta. In Germany the average consumption of pasta is 8,5 kg per person a year (in Italy is about 25 kg).
